in his own defense. his attorneys have stayed tight-lipped so far but there is speculation that bulger will want to testify. he's facing a slew of charges, including 19 counts of murder. if he's found guilty of even some at age 83, he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison. robert fitzpatrick wrote a book about trying to stop bulger. this case has been full of fireworks. deborah feyerick has been live. bring us up to date on this case. >> his lawyers have asked that the jury be sequestered during deliberations. prosecutors are against it and the judge is going to have to decide that. it's still not clear whether bulger is going to testify. they are going to testify over the period of two witnesses. key among them, a mother whose daughter was killed by bulger and her ex-boyfriend. she's going to be called to testify that her daughter was being sexually molested by the man and therefore he had a greater motive to kill her. also on this list of witnesses is a crime associate who is likely to take the fifth. the reason is that he was actually implicated in one of the murders. now,

their job? >> well, i initially felt that this was probably going to be a defense case because the prosecution just didn't have the evidence. but anybody who watched this network during the trial knows that as time went on, i began to see evidence that the prosecution, they simply weren't arguing and by closing argument they failed to put it together. it's entirely predictable this jury would take the jury instructions the law and try to apply the facts and if they don't fit they have to acquit and what jurors do in every case. >> were you surprised by what she was saying? >> no. this is exactly what i was saying frankly before the verdict this is how it was going to turn out when both sides are arguing reasonable doubt only one possible outcome and that was acquittal. she couldn't put it together. that is the prosecution' job. give them the theory of the case. that didn't happen. they failed to do that and so this was the predictable outcome and i'm so moved by her -- her tension, her conflict that she somehow knows this wasn't the right outcome but it's the one she had to com

. kristen welker, nbc news, washington. >>> tomorrow in boston, it's the defense's turn in the whitey bulger trial to make its case after the prosecution rested on friday. the trial has so far been filled with graphic testimony with a witness list that reads like a movie script. here's nbc's michelle franzen. >> reporter: james "whitey" bulger is on trial for the mob-style killings of 19 people and extorting millions of dollars from victims during the '70s and '80s. the prosecution presented 63 witnesses in 30 days. victims, drug dealers and hit men who are serving time for murder and plea deals. >> the defense is going to argue there are serious credibility problems in the key prosecution witnesses that these are people who had an ax to grind. >> reporter: dramatic testimony from close associates like bulger's longtime partner, steven "the rifleman" fleming and john "the executioner" marta lato. this is the nephew of one of the murder victims and a witness who was never called to testify and was found dead in a tony city suburb. davis suspects foul play. do you think he was murdered? >> me?
been six iterations of a defense in the irs case. but remember, lois learner disclosed at a conference, that's how we learned about it. then we went into it was two rogue agents, then it went to, well, it was a progressive group so we're targeted to not just conservative groups, so as long as we treat two different sets of people improperly, at least it's not discrimination. now the new defense is, well, the president himself didn't know about it. if that's the new standard for i am -- impropriety in this town, that the president didn't even know about it? >> if they had been denied right at the get-go, then they could have appealed it to another part of the irs. instead, what was so sadistic about this and so painful, they were in this no man's land and they couldn't appeal it. they would have been far better off if the irs agents, whoever was involved in this, however high it went, if they simply said no and denied it so they could appeal it. but instead they strung them out. >> that suggested more culpability, and you're right, it's as if they just gave up. these are average america
to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.

money. there would be no more shared national defense. it would just be texas on its own. the land where nobody messes with the fact that poor people can't afford health insurance. that was almost four years ago exactly. >> the opposition to reforming health care isn't the most cogent thing in the world thus far. the gop health care solutions group in congress, you will recall, admitted this week they think it's best if they don't actually offer any health care solutions. they'd rather just keep saying no to whatever it is the democrats are offering no matter what it is. but in this rollicking substance-free festival of incoherence, there is one man who is determined to be the most incoherent of all. little known outside his home state for anything other than having beautiful hair and for threatening to secede from the union back in april, texas governor rick perry is now threatening that texas will also secede from health care. i told you it was incoherent. speaking with a conservative talk show host yesterday on wbap in arlington, texas, governor perry had this to say about what he wan

, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to
the prosecution failed and the defense succeeded? >> i've said many times the prosecution bungled this case and failed to connect the jury instructions the law she is talking about with the evidence. in my opinion, the evidence was there. but the prosecution essentially asked questions in closing argument having a arguing reasonable doubt like the defense. of course this woman and probably many other jurors as well who is so conflicted and knows in her heart that something is wrong here that an injustice was done but that she was sworn to follow the law as it was given her. they were given 27 pages of confusing jury instructions. they had a prosecutor who didn't connect the dots and didn't give them the evidence to connect it to the jury instructions the way prosecutors do in every other murder case in america every day so this is how it came out. now not only is the martin family, of course, devastated, we heard that on yet another very gracious statement from sybrina fulton, but now the jurors are left feeling guilty and feeling terrible about the outcome of this case. >> now, goldie, thi

are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people who are making us weak in defense. >> in fact, chris christie's new jersey pays much more into the federal government through taxation than it gets back in federal spending. for every dollar in tax revenue that new jersey sends to washington it gets back only 77 cents. where does the 23 cents go? to rand paul's kentucky and other states. think of them as the gimme states, if you will, who take much more from the federal government than they ever pay for in federal tax revenue. for every dollar rand paul's kentucky sends to washington kentucky gets back $1.57. chris christie might be seeking the electoral votes of rand paul's gimme gimme state someday. so he will probably use a different line of defense against rand paul's gimme gimme gimme nonsense. joining me now, steve mcmahon, veteran democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies. steve, who are you betting on in this fight? >> i love it. i hope they go and they fight to a draw an

viable defenses, what could he face what penalties could it carry as well? >> reporter: of course aiding the enemy is the most serious of charges he faces and for that he could get life in prison but there are a variety of other charges that could land him in jail for some time. manning also charged with eight charges under the espionage act, five theft charges, and two more of computer fraud. all of those federal charges. each one could get him up to 10 years in prison. on top of that there are five military counts of violating regulations punishable up to two years. manning chose to have a judge decide the case instead of a jury. it is entirely up to her now. the judge tentatively scheduled a sentencing hearing on wednesday. that could run for several weeks since each side has more than 20 potential witnesses. jamie. >> will be interesting to see if manning speaks on that. thanks so much. bill: support for anthony weiner dropping like a stone amid the latest fallout from his newest texting scandal. the former congressman held on to second place in the days after the latest story broke

the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na
their death. now, the defense is going to have to try to show, look, there were just too many things that happened to hold him responsible for it. it's unfortunate, but he could not have foreseen this would happen and you shouldn't hold him accountable for this. that's a tough argument the defense has. the state has a pretty strong case because these women would not be dead if he hadn't been acting with gross negligence. >> it is tragic as you say all the way around. we'll follow it and see if it goes all the way through. monica lindstrom, thank you. >> thank you. >>> a graying and humbled o.j. simpson says he is sorry for the crimes that put him in prison. perhaps for the rest of his life. here he was. appeared by video feed before nevada's parole board in support of his plea that he be granted parole for burglary, robbery and kidnapping convictions. simpson is serving a 33-year sentence and would still have to serve at least four years on two other charges, eve fn the board rules in his favor. describing his clean prison record, simpson said he is a mentor to other inmates. >> i th
this one thing to my own surprise in boehner's defense which is that even if he is for it, it may be a little bit early for him to tip his hand because that gives the opposition time to generate more opposition. but, it still will remain a huge question as to whether he will permit this to come to the floor. the sort of gossip or open secret in washington right now is that if he does and if it passes and if the republican base is as furious as everybody expects them to be, that might be the end of his speakership. he would have to make that decision, knowing that, you know, his days as speaker might be be numbered. >> john: the g.o.p.-led house as you know, has passed the fewest bills since they began keeping track of this back in 1947. so, michael, what does it say about john boehner's leadership when he qualified his party's inaction by saying it is not how many laws you pass but by how many you repeal. they're only working nine days the entire month of september. >> absolutely shocking statement and actually, my column that will be up tomorrow morning on the "daily beast" is ab
and relatively transparent defenses for what this is about, which is people love sex, they love talking about sex, they love talking about other people's sex often more than their own sex lives. any time you can move from the real issues in the new york mayoral race, which includes things like public racial profiling rather than private online profiles, and any time you get off the sewer system and on to somebody's texts, obviously the public is interested. the new york voters are interested, so i get why we're talking about it. they're talking about it. but this is not the criteria of how to choose a mayor. the fact that what we've learned now is what we already knew, is that anthony weiner has this part of his life and it has intersecreta intersected with his public life and voters may pull away from him. you've got "the new york times" and "the new york daily news" saying he should be out of the race. you've got the usual mcaur theist mafia trying to bring him down. what do we know? what we learned is what we learned from st. augustine a long time ago. many people say to their lord, to their s
defense has been around for centuries and centuries. what we've done in recent years is tinker with it. you've always had the castle doctrine, you had the right to defend your home, your castle. if somebody kicks in your front door, you're don't have to run out the back. southern states have taken that outside the home to where you know he can be the aggressor as george zimmerman clearly was and still ever the right to claim self defense. i don't know how you train your children to properly walk to the store to buy iced tea and skittles. cenk: j.d. said why couldn't trayvon stand his ground. some guy comes up, trayvon stands his ground and now they say well he had it coming if he got shot. andrew, i understand the second amendment, i understand the gun owners want to protect their rights and all that stuff, we've heard it a million times but do non-gun owners, they don't have the same rights, they can't stand their ground, if they fight back and they can be executed and it's totally fine? i don't get it. >> that's an interesting question. actually, i think kirsten powers said what if t
a case against the other shooters. the judge ruled they fired in self-defense and said, "the law would appear to allow a person to seek out an individual, provoke them into a confrontation, then shoot and kill him if he goes for his gun. it is very much like the wild west." one of the defense attorneys added, "you can't pick or choose who's going to benefit from a law." advocates of stand your ground tend to argue the law increases public safety, but when the courts are saying it creates a wild west, acknowledging that fact as they set killers free, it's hard to take the notion of public safety seriously. the verdict in the george zimmerman trial two weeks ago might be the most high-profile example of stand your ground's unintended consequences, but it is just one of many in the eight years since then-governor jeb bush signed stand your ground into law. 13 days ago in the wake of the zimmerman verdict, a group of protesters marched into the florida state capitol, to the reception area outside governor rick scott's office. the latest sheriff of florida's wild west and those prosecutors

. they called at this time national defense education act. it was all about america's defense. and what they said was, we will loan money to student loans across -- students across america to go to college. i think that their rationale was sound. if more americans went to college and got educated we would have the engineers and scientists we need to make this a strong nation from a defense point of view and from our economy point of view. so i thank the russians for launching sputnik and i thank the congress for creating the national defense education act because a kid from east stlooth st. louis, illinois, whose parents had eighth grade educations had a chance to go to college and he's standing here today in the united states senate. it was a good deal, too. the national defense education act said you don't have to pay it back until after you graduate, ten equal payments at 3% interest. i remember these because i was frightened to death in 1969 when i finished law school and added up all my student loans and they said to me you owe $8,500. i went home to my wife and i said we're doomed
